Jakarta, Indonesia. Viro's business line, Virobuild, has products that is able to have customization. Therefore, Virobuild often collaborates with architects and designers. In Index Indonesia Mozaik Housewares & Gift Show 2017, Viro gets a chance to feature in Francis Surjaseputra's work, one of Indonesian design consultants whose works have been known not only in Indonesia, also in many other countries. Viro provides Virobamboo installation for the design with themed "Habis Gelap Terbitlah Terang" ("After Darkness, Comes The Light").


The installation tells about secure sense and positiveness, reflected in big lights which stand everywhere, inside and outside of our home. Feeling secure from a threat, a chaos, and a riot around should be maintained, like bamboos tied sturdy. Instead sharpening a sharpened bamboo, use it for positive things to build a safe and harmony in society. A translucent wall on the partition reflects a dynamic life in people's relationship, open yet respect certain boundaries, so that can make a perfect safe and peace condition.


With the look and feel of real bamboo, you won’t be able to tell the difference between our bamboo and the real bamboo. Used for decorative or structural elements, Virobamboo is made of High Density Polyethylene which is non-toxic, all-weather resistant, will not fade or peel and contains no PVC, and 100% recyclable. If more strength is required, these long bamboo poles can be reinforced with metal rods to create solid structural integrity. Virobamboo can be utilized as structural or decorative architectural element. Virobamboo is manufactured in four items of diameter; 24 millimeter, 32 millimeter, 50 millimeter, and 75 millimeter.


Virobamboo has these features and benefits:

  • Maintenance free and does not peel, or discolor.
  • Long durability.

  • Resists insects that normally infest natural bamboo.

  • Waterproof and weatherproof.

  • No season shortages because it is factory produced.

  • 100% recyclable. Made of HDPE, high-density polyethylene.

  • Available with Built-in fire retardant.

  • Light and bendable, yet strong and not easy cracked.


The installation will be showcased for three days from October 5, 2017 in Index Indonesia Mozaik Housewares & Gift Show 2017, hall A - Jakarta Convention Center, stand A026 B.
